How much can one learn? How many things can a person master? Are there over-arching skills that one can focus on to improve one’s facility with many different skills? I’d really like to be a great photographer, a cutting-edge designer, a good businessperson, a trusted counselor, a good advisor, a knowledgeable historian, an effective teacher, a compelling writer, and a decent human being. Not necessarily in that order. Is it reasonable to think that I can become all those things? Is it possible to be well-rounded in an age that requires such depth in every field? Or should I give up some of my dreams? Try to develop in stages?
P.S. – Be sure to watch the Shinn Photo blog tomorrow morning around 8 am. I created an art piece earlier today that I’m excited to share!
